THE MISSING LINK

“And if one gift is missing, God’s treasure house would not be full. Yet is its fullness guaranteed by God.” A Course In Miracles

“I will accept my gifts from God today.”

Sometimes it feels as though there’s something missing. Some small thing we just can’t grasp. It lies somewhere between confusion and perfect understanding. We sometimes see it in the periphery of our vision just barely out of sight. Now and then we catch a glimpse only to have it disappear once more. This missing link causes a disconnect between what seems to be and what should be.

We think we need just one more book, one more teacher, one more class, one more affirmation, one more thing, one more mantra and then we’ll have it; effortless peace. total happiness, perfect health, complete safety.

So what’s missing? And where do we find it?

The answer is we’ll find it in the place we’re least likely to look; right inside ourselves. We refuse to believe that because it’s too simple, too clear, too easy. Surely we have to work for it. Sweat for it. Sacrifice for it. It can’t just BE there waiting for us to accept it. A free gift requiring nothing from us. Like plucking a peach from a tree or picking a flower from the garden.

Oh yeah. There is one requirement. We have to want it. It’s called a little willingness and then a leap of faith. The missing link between what’s missing and all there is, is TRUST.

Not so easy, but very, very simple. The truth is there is nothing missing except our trust in God. We may think we trust in Him, but believing in God is not the same as trusting in God. Trust is absolute and goes beyond belief to knowing. In knowing there are no questions, no doubts, no uncertainty of any kind. Now you can pluck your perfect peach free of charge and enjoy it forever.

“And what is whole can have no missing parts that have been kept outside. Forgiveness rests on recognizing this.” A Course In Miracles
